Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good progress from their starting points and achieve well in reading, writing and mathematics. By the end of Year 6 standards are at least average, and in reading are above average.

As a result of the good opportunities for learning and the relationships developed with staff, children settle quickly into the Early Years Foundation Stage and progress well. Teaching is good overall; consistently strong teaching is seen in all key stages. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding; their very positive attitudes to learning contribute to the good standards in all areas of the school.

Pupils feel safe at school and have confidence in their ...teachers and other adults to help them if they have any concerns. The temporary leaders have ensured that what the school offers pupils continues to be good, including the quality of teaching, and maintains pupils' good achievement. All staff and governors actively promote the strong ethos of the school which supports pupils to achieve well.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Information about how well pupils are achieving is not used well enough to make sure there is the right amount of challenge, particularly for a few of the most able pupils. Middle leaders are not as effective as they could be in leading improvements.
